    Publishing house : Gallimard

    Publication : October 2019

    “There is a whole new world that interests us to the highest degree, because at last the Craft of Architecture is working for man.” (Charlotte Perriand, letter to Pierre Jeanneret, 1936) What is this “new world” imagined by architect and designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999)? How does it rethink our relationship to nature and the place given to art in everyday life? The answers given by this pioneer of modernity seem to us today of an astonishing topicality. Published on the occasion of the major retrospective devoted by the Fondation Louis Vuitton to Charlotte Perriand and her links with the artists and architects of her time, this book offers a new reading of a work marked by commitment and freedom. Under the direction of Sébastien Cherruet and Jacques Barsac, this catalog, which brings together contributions from French and foreign authors in an approach that is both chronological and thematic, invites you to take a creative journey through the 20th century.

    Icon Icon’s opinion :

    This book is a first in that it brings together design pieces that go beyond utility – more than 400 pieces that hold experimentation, pleasure, beauty and research are thus gathered in this beautiful book!

    Author : Judith Gura ; Jean-François Cornu

    Publishing house : La Martinière

    Publication : November 2021

    The romantic image of the craftsman alone in his workshop has given way to that of the creator at work in his laboratory, a foundry or even a factory. Craftsmanship has evolved, combining handwork and technology, providing virtually unlimited opportunities for designers to create unique furniture for galleries, exhibitions and or sophisticated clients. This synthesis of art, design and technology has resulted in a multitude of highly sought-after collectibles.

    This comprehensive overview of contemporary furniture celebrates the achievements of an international selection of designers producing works of individual artistic expression that can be found in both museums and private homes.

    Featuring more than 400 pieces, from impeccably finished tables and chairs made from natural materials to experimental furniture on the border between art and craft, this book is a first.

    Structured by type of object and by designer, the book also presents some of the places (studios, factories) where these unique pieces of furniture are made, as well as a selection of major interiors showing collection furniture in situ.

    Personalization and exclusivity in design are increasingly valued in a world that is returning to the values of authentic craftsmanship. This richly illustrated overview will appeal to design connoisseurs, collectors and anyone interested in custom furniture design.

    The turning point of the year 67, that is to say the year when the Stones took the bet of the total freedom in front of the ridiculous and outdated laws of Great Britain… “This book constitutes a real police investigation and reveals, forty-five years later, heaps of dirty tricks carefully passed under silence at the time” notes the editor!

    Author : Simon Wells

    Publishing House : Camion Blanc

    Date of Release : December 2012

    Today, it may sound funny, but in 1967, the drug law was not a joke. For a blunt and 4 amphetamine pills, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards found themselves in jail. A little party that ended badly. It’s a good thing the cops didn’t know that before the search, the guests had been high on LSD! As for Brian Jones, let’s not talk about it: the persecutions he was subjected to by the authorities only aggravated his already weakened mental health. For three years, the young people had been pissing off the old people with their pop music, their long hair, their pirate radios, their drugs and their decadent way of life (until 1967, homosexuality was still punishable by prison). The latter were determined to take their revenge on these pimps and girlies who were rolling in money while hollering yeah yeah yeah. This book is a real police investigation and reveals, forty-five years later, a lot of dirty tricks that were carefully ignored at the time!

    The Stones’ epic through the lens of each of their albums, described and captured by renowned music critic Alain Gouvrion…

    Author : Alain Gouvrion

    Publishing House : Éditions du Layeur

    Date of Release : November 2021

    The Rolling Stones, one of the two biggest bands in rock history. The other is called The Beatles. This illustrated book features record covers and presents the story of each album’s creation with a few powerful phrases. And for this we can trust Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.

    It is said that there are a thousand ways to tell a story, and that of the fabulous Rolling Stones has inspired dozens of biographers. This true rock epic often opens with the famous reunion scene between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, two childhood friends, on the platform of Dartford station, at the dawn of the sixties.
    But it could just as easily begin with images of a young blond guitarist named Brian Jones playing Elmore James blues, an elegant drummer named Charlie Watts haunting London jazz clubs, or a certain William Perks, an enigmatic bassist recruited, it is said, because he was the lucky owner of an amplifier.
    For having lived a thousand lives against a backdrop of scandal, dope and rock’n’roll, the Stones remain an indelible monument of Pop Culture. This book, which explores most of their discography, including their solo work, is another prism that perpetuates the legend. That of a band of young white Englishmen possessed by the Devil’s music and who have been electrifying our lives for over half a century.

    A selection of places, beautiful hotels and very stylish fashion pictures — this book is about life in Athens as it wants you to experience it by yourself.

    Author: Stéphanie Artarit

    Publishing House: Assouline

    Publication Date: May 2020

    Overlooking the Aegean Sea, a charming string of coastal neighborhoods form the Athens Riviera, a serene escape from the constant activity in the city’s center. A selection of high-end hotels lines the pristine stretch of beaches down to the southernmost point of the Attica Peninsula. The revamped Four Seasons Astir Palace, with a history of housing foreign dignitaries and film stars of the 1960s, is the most luxurious hotel in Athens, perhaps even in all of Greece. The night club, Island, is bringing back the glamour and excitement of the twentieth century bouzouki clubs reminiscent of names such as Melina Mercouri and Stavros Niarchos.

    Athens is experiencing a revival—in art, night life and design. For a metropolis constantly associated with the past, the modern strides in development and culture are sometimes overlooked in favor of the ruins and artifacts from antiquity. When in fact, the juxtaposition only enhances the beauty of both. Athens Riviera puts the old-world beside the new-world and a deeper understanding of this ancient capital emerges. With one foot in the past and one foot in the future; access to both the electricity of city life and the tranquility of a beach side resort, Athens cannot be defined in simple terms. One just has to experience it for themselves.

This distinctive setting challenges the minds of architects and designers, yielding unique spaces that delightfully blur the line between interior and exterior. Within these pages, the region’s characteristic cobalt blue is reflected from the sky and sea to the walls, shutters, and design pieces that adorn its homes, both picturesque and bold.
